The two halves of the Junction Triangle (separated by Bloor Street West) offer two very different living experiences.
Taking its name from the rail junctions that sit in its three corners, the Junction Triangle is a hotbed of activity. The section south of Bloor is commonly referred to as “Sterling Road”, in reference to its main thoroughfare. The factories and warehouses that were previously dominant here have been joined by an eclectic mix of restaurants, art galleries and the new Museum of Contemporary Art. To the north, Symington Avenue serves as the main street of a community teeming with trendy bars and coffee shops, as well as a growing mix of both old and new housing.
Transportation in the Junction Triangle
Via its stations at Dundas West and Lansdowne, Line 2 Bloor-Danforth provides subway service within walking distance of most neighborhood residents. Buses on Symington, Lansdowne Avenue or Dupont Street offer transfers to stations on either Line 2 or Line 1 Yonge-University. Additionally, Bloor GO/UP station sits along the western edge of the community. From there, Downtown Toronto is easily accessible via the Union-Pearson Express or GO Transit’s Kitchener Line, while Pearson Airport is just minutes away on the UP Express.
